Prologue – State of the Union

Well the delivery was well rehearsed charisma and not nearly as openly divisive as anticipated and yet, in some ways, I couldn’t help but sense that I was watching a Man attempting to avoid two quickly approaching conclusions:

  1. Although he knows it he has not yet fully come to grips with the simple truth that the Public has turned against him as has his political capital.
  2. The best of all options before him revolves around avoiding moves that drives the 2014 Mid-term outcome towards the Republicans. Still unwavering in his far-left-of-center leadership form and self-affirmed in his never-to-move-center stand he did speak to an understanding that few can reject:

“The United States is better-positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on earth.”

This truth, if only as the outcome of inherent potential alone, may seem novel it has always been a native ideal implicit in the very truths we hold dear! This is and has always been the unalienable truth of freedom accompanied by the liberty to express it; a privileged attribute for each.

The following are a select group of responses to questions/comments received after the original article was published. We believe you will find them of interest.

#1: I believe Jefferson was right in his position of loathing the imperial-like appearance of a formalized SOTU which remained a simple communiqué (to Congress) until revived by Woodrow Wilson.

“He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them,…” (Article 2:Section 3.1) Your thoughts?
